The people at Harris Interactive recently surveyed more than 2,000 American adults and asked them which TV dads they would have wanted as their dad growing up.  And the winner by a landslide was ...  BILL COSBY as Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show". He was number one for both men and women, and across all age groups, all races, and all political affiliations. It's gotta be the sweaters!

 Here's the rest of the top10:

#2.) Ward Cleaver from "Leave it to Beaver"

#3.) Jim Anderson from "Father Knows Best"
#4.) Howard Cunningham from "Happy Days"
#5.) Andy Taylor from "The Andy Griffith Show"
#6.) Mike Brady from "The Brady Bunch"

#7.) Ozzie Nelson from "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet"
#8.) Charles Ingalls from "Little House on the Prairie"
#9.) Tim Taylor from "Home Improvement"
#10.) Ben Cartwright from "Bonanza"
